This week we bring you a conversation recorded in Ottawa between a CPR correspondent and Jarrod Shook. If you listen to our show you’ll recognize Jarrod’s name – he was an active voice and frequent contributor to CPR while he was incarcerated at Collins Bay Institution before getting paroled one year ago. He shared his thoughts about what life is like on parole, his engagement with the Ottawa poetry scene, prison activism in Ottawa including opposing new jail construction, his involvement with the Journal of Prisoners on Prison, and Prisoners Justice Day.

Music:

Johnny Cash – Redemption Song (ft Joe Strummer)
Bone Thugs – Coming Home (ft Stephen Marley)
